On the heels of a disappointing medical update, the family of 6-week-old Liam Stephenson is asking the public for prayers.

Baby Liam was diagnosed with bacterial meningitis at Erlanger Hospital, where he has been in the facility's Neonatal intensive Care Unit since birth. Now, at 6-weeks-old, his family says that the results of a recent MRI may indicate some brain damage.

The child's aunt Jana Blackenship tells FOX 5 the family is asking for prayers to uplift Liam and his family during this difficult time.
